PAR - Federal University of Paraná
The participatory action research project (PAR) at the Federal University of Paraná will focus on the climate emergency and its relationship with education, law, public health and the environment. The proposal seeks to listen to populations that are in a situation of vulnerability relating to climate emergency, violations of rights and experiences of resistance. Through the PAR methodology, it aims to develop conversation circles and thematic workshops with representatives of social movements, traditional communities and non-governmental organizations that already face this debate, as well as researchers, professors and university students.
The PAR aims to:
diagnose and understand the impacts of climate change on rural populations, indigenous, coastal and riverside communities, campers/settlers of lands reforms, those affected by dams and/or climate disasters, among others, with special attention to women, from the perspective of intersectionality;
identify the claims, as well as the strategies of resistance of these social subjects;
provide information/training with subjects involved, based on the knowledge produced/systematized by universities on issues of risks, climate disasters, collective health, coastal socio-environmental vulnerabilities, climate litigation, as well as the issue of women and climate change from the perspective of intersectionalities;
build with the subjects involved a concept of climate justice and a social and environmental sustainability agenda.
